Description Sebastien Pouliot 2012-10-02 08:53:50 UTC
If you link (not move or copy) to an existing `.a` outside the project directory then the `*.linkwith.cs` file is created at the original location, i.e. not within the project directory. Which is problematic if that directory is not under (the same) version control.
